Shiatsu/ Breathwork/ Talking Therapy
Robert is a shiatsu, breathwork and talking therapy practitioner. He is also a carpenter, natural builder and project manager. He trained in the practices which have held and inspired his journey into the immensely diverse experience of being alive - the joy of intimacy, community, expression and creative flow and those difficult to let in places that appear to inhibit or get in the way of that experience. He is interested in exploring the self to find that starting point that brings possibility, impetus and nourishment to the process of connecting with life, which can lead to community with others, along with creative expression and the deepest satisfaction in the giving of one's gift. Finding the source of nourishment and inspiration within one's self appears to be at the centre of getting well.
Robert qualified in shiatsu at the Bristol School of Shiatsu and is a member of the register of the Shiatsu Society (UK). He trained with Andy and Ella Portman of Living Tao in conscious breathwork and talking therapy. He furthered his training in talking therapy through postgraduate study at the Bristol School of Shiatsu and with a BACP qualification at Strode College.
For Robert shiatsu is a strong and tender container in which someone can fully explore and transform the relationship with themselves. The physical, emotional, spiritual, energetic body as well as the psyche and mental health can be explored. It is a bodywork practice that supports the body's innate ability to heal trauma. It involves direct connection to the body in touch, pressure, movement techniques and stretches. Shiatsu sessions are fully clothed and practiced on a futon on the ground.
Conscious breathwork has its roots in ancient Taoist and Yogic breathing techniques and brings about deep clearing, healing and integration. Breathing is as essential to healing as it is to life.
Talking Therapy is a safe place to be heard and tell ones story to an empathic, non-judgmental listener, giving permission for uncompromised expression. It is a another arena in which to explore, identify and release deeply held strategies, patterns and trauma. It is a place to help understand and unravel the story with appropriate reflections and challenges.
Touch, breathing and talking are very powerful things, they can bring you home.
